Storyline

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Written by dobbinnian / rodriguez

The snow will run red...
12 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I have no idea where the notion that this was a musical had been instilled in my mind; perhaps I mixed it up with "Cannibal! The Musical" from 1993. Not really sure. But regardless, then I sort of put off watching this movie until now.

I will say that it is a fairly entertaining, albeit stereotypical horror comedy.

The story is about Danish painter Lars (played by Thure Lindhardt) who has come to Canada to work at an art school. The artist has been in a dry spell for 10 years and have no plans to return to making art. However, as he is stuck with having to taking care of a reclusive mute named Eddie (played by Dylan Smith), Lars finds inspiration for his new paintings as he finds out that Eddie sleepwalks, and does so pretty vile stuff while sleepwalking.

Storywise, then "Eddie" (aka "Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal") was entertaining and had a funny - but dark - twist to it. I enjoyed the storyline, because it was a tad bizarre and out there.

The movie was really brought to life by some great performances by the people who were hired for the various roles and characters.

"Eddie" is good entertainment for anyone who enjoys a dark and bloody horror comedy.
